LAMkoLAM recommends this course:
Easily the best bang for my time. Very succinct, but deeply packed morsels of brain food. I wish there were more of these informative short MOOCs for every subject!
Sonar7 recommends this course:
Biology major with a focus on neuroscience checking in. Sometimes I get so buried in my textbooks, lab, and research, I forget how to apply what I'm learning about my brain to my own brain! Phew. I know, inception. This course was relatively easy for me. I imagine it will be for most people. Still, I'm amazed at how much I've actually learned. There are so many awesome "hacks" I could use to make the most of my study time. I also find I've gotten better at explaining concept topics in neuroscience by imitating how the instructors explain things to my non-bio peers. If my uni offered something like this it'd be called "Introduction to Applied Neuroscience".

I wish I found out about this class sooner because I think it could have helped me in high school and uni. Still, I have a few exams coming up for work. Hopefully I can apply Dr. Oakley and Dr. Terrence's teachings to them.

This course made me aware that I was using a lot of learning techniques already, so it was cool to see why they work. The subject matter is really interesting!
